For resources, I'd share some of the resources that have helped me out. These are personal preferences:

  • Microsoft Learn Accessibility Fundamentals path: docs.microsoft.com/en-us/learn/pat... This is a great path for those seeking to just understand digital accessibility and see how Microsft puts it into action in their various products.
  • PluralSight Course Meeting Web Accessibility Guidelines (Section 508/ WCAG 2.1) by Gerard K. Cohen. (pluralsight.com/courses/web-access...). This is a great course that breaks down into detail the various accessibility guideline like WCAG 2.1 and Section 508, interpreting and explaining how they can be implemented. However, some people might not be able to pay for a PluralSight subscription, you can reach out to me, and I'll try and help you get a free 30-day pass (if possible). But also PluralSight usually opens up their library to everyone during PluralSight Free Weekends where you can access their whole content library.
  • Attending conferences and talks on #a11y. I can't stress this point enough. Nothing beats experience. Attending events and listening to other people amazingly enriches you. You get to learn what they know and even get amazing actionable tips and advice from them too. Those different perspectives and ideas will help you find your way and be a good ambassador of a11y. So this should be your go-to place when it comes to learning more about a11y and inclusivity

I would also love to see resources used by others so that I can also continue learning
